Though she is currently single, Blair’s plethora of romantic engagements have always captivated her fans’ attention. Due to Blair’s achievement of early fame and name, she started getting engaged in a romantic relationship very soon in her life.

 Blair had engaged in many high-profile romantic connections. Her most notable partners were Rick Springfield, Rick James, and Wings Hauser. Blair’s name had also been connected to several other celebrities like Neil Giraldo, Tommy Shaw, and Jim Dandy Mangrum.

Linda Blair’s first lover: Rick Springfield

When Linda was fifteen, she dated Springfield, who was twenty-five at that time. Following “The Exorcist,” she was at the pinnacle of fame, and Springfield described himself asa penniless musician in a $180-a-month apartment.”

Although he was unaware of the age difference at the time, Springfield acknowledged Blair’s and her sister’s offer to go out at a pub when they first met backstage. Blair was ten years his junior, but despite their extreme age difference, Springfield became attracted to Blair because she was attractive and well-known at the time. Rick and Linda landed up in his flat after having spent some time at the bar.

As Rick states, “I am her first lover and she is an enthusiastic learner. We share a love of dog and sex separately, not in combination. Most of the time we don’t leave the apartment”

The relationship between Linda and Springfield could not last long. It ended within a year but the two continued to remain friends.

 According to Blair, they broke up because of the media attention, therefore their romance could not survive. She thinks that because there is so much scrutiny in the Limelight, it is really hard to keep a romance going. Their worlds diverged, and ultimately they parted ways.

Springfield’s account, however, is a little different since he said that their drug use-related fights and their habit of sleeping with other people caused their separation.

After all this Linda and Springfield share a good friendship to this date, as Springfield is one of the active supporters of Linda’s organization. Linda recently wished Springfield on his birthday. She posts a picture on her Instagram handle with Springfield captioned as,

 “Happiest of Birthdays to my dear friend @rickspringfield. Thank you for all you’ve done over the years to support the rescued animals and my nonprofit. You are the best with the kindest heart! I hope this birthday is just the best one yet.🥳❤️”

The romance between Linda Blair and Rick James started in the fall of 1982 when they happened to meet paths at a refined Hollywood party. Unlike Linda’s previous relationship, Rick James and Linda Blair were both well-known and graced with unusual charisma.

Rick and Linda were both party animals with untamed spirits. Early in 1983, Linda Blair found out she was expecting Rick James’ child, but she decided to undergo an abortion without telling Rick.

After learning of the news, James was saddened. He used music to convey his anguish and composed the popular song “Cold-blooded,” which is about Linda. Even though they never got married, their romance was the talk of the town because of their immense affection.

Ultimately, the couple separated at the close of 1983.

 After several years, Linda expresses guilt about having an abortion without telling Rick. She thought that her behavior had severely damaged their relationship and affected both of their lives. She too believed that Rick would have been a great father for her child.

In his book, “The Autobiography of Rick James”, Rick praised Linda calling her “incredible” and saying that she has a “beautiful mind” and “mind-blowing body”. Rick James left behind a legacy when he departed away in 2004, due to a heart attack.
